Twenty thousand years ago, when man crossed the land bridge to North America, creatures called They Who Follow made the great trek as well. But once in the new continent, the giant beasts disappeared, whether into hiding or extinction, no one knew. Centuries later, a battered journal - the only evidence left from the night of the Romanovs' execution - turns up in a rare bookstore. As the U.S. and Russians vie for the truth, and the lost Romanov treasure, they collide with a prehistoric predator thought long-extinct. It's up to the Event Group to lay to rest the legends. On an expedition into the wilds of British Columbia, Colonel Jack Collins and his team make a horrifying discovery in the continent's last deep wilderness, where men have been vanishing for centuries.

Review:

Imagine mixing in a blender Tom Clancy with the movie Predator and the X-Files . . . non-stop action (Library Journal)

A mix of James Rollins action-heavy adventure, the military gadgetry of Tom Clancy, and the pacing of 24 (Booklist)

Spectacularly cinematic . . . a flat out adrenalin rush (New York Times bestselling authors Judith and Garfield Reeves Stevens)

From the Back Cover:

THE EVENT GROUP WILL TAKE NO PRISONERS

Twenty thousand years ago, when early man made his way to North America, a tribe of prehistoric predators made the great trek as well. But these giant, deadly beasts seemingly became extinct...and humans lived to become the most violent creatures on Earth. Man's brutal nature reached a boiling-point with the execution of Russia's last czar and his entire family. But some believed that the czar's children, Alexei and Anastasia, survived--and came to America with the treasury of the Romanov dynasty. That legend was born on July 17, 1918--and lives on to this day...

AS THEY DARE TO UNEARTH AN ANCIENT EVIL

Almost a hundred years later, a battered journal--the only evidence left from the night of the Romanovs' execution--turns up in a rare bookstore. Suddenly everyone's trying to decipher the location of the Romanov treasure...and people are turning up dead along the way. Enter the Event Group, the most secret organization in U.S. history. Colonel Jack Collins is charged with finding out what really happened to Alexei and Anastasia. To get to the truth, he and his team will have to travel to the continent's last deep wilderness where men have been vanishing for centuries-- and come face to face with a mythical enemy from the dawn of time....

"Sure to satisfy fans of The X-Files."--Publishers Weekly
